How to screen record on PC?



  By Olga Krovyakova - December, 29 2020

Not sure how to screen record on PC? Using SolveigMM's HyperCam is the best way for video recording from your computer screen. This screen recorder for PC allows you to record all screen activity and sound (including sound from a microphone connected to your computer). For example, with this computer screen recorder you can record a video in full screen mode, video from part of the screen, from external video devices (including webcam), lectures, webinars, gameplay, calls in Skype, etc.

At the same time when using the HyperCam software you can be sure that the screen recorder will make a high-quality recording from your PC screen, together with a clear audio track - with system sound and sound from the microphone (if necessary and when the corresponding recording settings are enabled). Recording is quick and easy with the screen recorder from SolveigMM. Its correct use guarantees a high quality Windows screen recording both with sound and voice from the microphone and without it.

High quality of the final video content and user-friendly functionality is the hallmark of our screen recorder. That is why the software is ideal for PC users who value the quality of their work result and who want to do everything from the first “take”, and not after a series of unsuccessful attempts. This is especially useful in situations when repeating the actions is impossible ─ recording a Skype conversation, streams, gameplay, etc.
